main difference is the motor

posted by  Amras

Thank you for that valuable input, Amras. Perhaps you could care enogh to explain the reasoning behind your post? They're both different sized rotaries, maybe?

Come on man, don't spam like that.

it isnt a spam...its just a answer...and I cant explain the difference exactly...I only know that the main difference is in the motor from the vehicle. :banghead:

posted by  Amras

The main engine difference is that from 89- on, they had a different intake setup... Other than that, the basic block is the same, as far as I know.

The 89 and later also had a slightly different front end, and different tail-lights.

lol didnt even see that. and he was wrong about the engine part. different compression ratios on the rotors and the eccentric is balanced differently.
